    Go with the stock WS6 Hood. Take it to a reputable body shop and they'll know what to do with it.

    IMO the WS6 is more agressive looking with the 4 separate inlets, as opposed to the raptor's 2, but to each his own - you would likely have a more unique look if you went with the raptor. I want to say suncoast makes decent hoods, and if you really want to get creative, US exotics is the place you want to get in touch with.

    What company makes the hood you found? Be aware that most of the cheaper hoods will 9 times out of 10 have fitment and/or finish issues. I would only recommend Sun Coast or SLP for an aftermarket hood. Maybe someone else could chime in here and give you a recommendation of a good bargain manufacturer.

    i believe your talkin about a trufiber brand hood . . . and yes that is a good brand. ive heard many say that are satisfied with the fit and quality. also consider us exoctics, but im not sure if they are still makin the hoods for our cars. i have a ws9 from them. . . great quality and i had no fitment issues, except for havin to adjust my headlight covers.

    Thanks for the good news i really appreciate it... i took a look at that ws9 hood and it's a beast, i really liked it but it's a little too pricey for me right now. thanks a ton again though man
